Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, stroll around Riverside Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church.

For photos, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, use the Helsinki online trip planner.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
